parental controls

Toronto, 2018.10.05

So it's come to this: we've had to institute the parental controls on The Boy's Nintendo Switch. The specific issue was the amount of usage. It's great to think that you can leave decisions up to a ten year old – we even had a signed agreement in place – but the reality is that a bit of guidance is still required.

Interesting. I wondered what, ultimately, it is in Nintendo's interest that they even produced the utility in the first place. Political cover for producing an addictive product?
